JMF Audio PCD302 Power Line Filter and Distributor

As much optimized an audio system can be it will never reveal its full potential without a clean mains power supply. Following the success of the PC3 power cord for the significant sound quality improvement that comes along, JMF Audio brings a total answer: the PCD302 power line filter and distributor, world first concept!

The PCD302's exclusive bi-directional and independent filtering principle suppresses power line disturbances coming from the outside as well as interactions between audio gears.

Dual mono concept

Each mono section powered through an attached JMF Audio PC3 cord

Phase detection on each input

Bi-directional JMF Audio BDF223 filtering!

The PCD302 contains 6 enormous, hand wrapped, potted BDF223 filters

10 filtered outputs of which 6 are totally independent

Sequential power output to reduce in-rush currents on the mains

Case and front panel size identical to the JMF Audio power amplifiers

A single front panel button to power-on and power-off the main power supply

Mounted on sub-chassis, acoustically floating, vibration free

Soundproof case

Total power handling: over 7kW

Operation from 100 to 240VAC automatic

Elegant concept:

With a simple gesture, on its front panel button, the PCD302 can start up and power down an entire JMF Audio setup, without risk of power line shutdown, without risk of "pop" in the speakers.
The sequential output power-up ensures a spread of in-rush currents over time.
The PCD302 is built around the same chassis as the JMF Audio power amplifiers, for a coherent stacking.

Simplicity of installation:

Two indicators on the rear panel light up to warn in case of phase reversal.
The operation from 100 to 240V AC, without servicing, makes installation internationally easy and safe.
Clear and extensive owner's manual provided.
